You can tell that a lot of attention has been given to quality with this cider. The flavor is the perfect balance of sweet and tart, with a rich aroma and mellow finish. The addition of organic honey really accentuates the flavor, giving it more complex notes and a satisfying, clean flavor. This is truly an artisanal product, and motivates me to try the other Crispin varieties of hard cider.

Look, apple cider is not in my wheel house, but tonight I had a craving. Crispin’s "Honey Crisp" could almost be a chardonnay; it’s replete with apple, pear, and honey notes--and yes, it does finish crisp. Nice change up during the hot summer months.

Cloudy yellowish-white pour. Appearance of a white wine. Apple juice flavor, yeast character, some honey for sure. Zesty. Over ice, it’s mellowed out and less sweet. It has other wine-like features. Alcoholic for a cider. More zest. And sweet apples.

Handsome cloudy yellow pour some floaters. Aroma of sweet honeycrisp. Tastes of sweet tarts some fresh apple. Light carb. Good sessionable cider that tastes like real apple.

650ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: Fantastic amounts of pears and apples. Exceptionally juicy; the smell baptizes the room. Not a lot of honey sweetness comes through, but there is definitely a massive amount of fruity juice. Appearance: Quite pale, straw, yellow-green pastel colored, hazy body. No head or cap at all. No lacing. Low visible amount of carbonation. Taste: Delicious, juicy apples. No bitterness at all. A teeny bit of sweetness, and a bit of tart flavor towards the back of the palate. Palate: Ultralight body, but not watery. Incredibly low carbonation. This cider’s finish is of medium length and ends on a succulent apple note Overall: A nice little find. I thought Angry Orchard was the cider all others would be judged by, but this one is a different approach that gave me some welcome perspective. Light, crisp, refreshing, and able to be minimally sweet and not cloying at all.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Pours cloudy like a hefeweizen. Smells like fresh cut apples. Tastes like apples with a light alcohol taste. There’ a light honey sweetness. Nice mouthfeel. Easily the best hard apple cider I’ve had yet

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Rated on 6-28-2010 (Bottle) This cider has a small head, mostly transparent/slightly hazy body, fizzy, and fast rising carbonation. The aroma is sweet, apples and honey. The taste is very sweet, honey and apple juice. The palate is soft carbonatio and this cider is light-medium bodied. This cider is very easy to drink, apples upfront and a cider I would possibly drink again.

Part of a side-by-side cider tasting, thanks David! Poured from big brown bottle into a snifter glass. It poured a slightly hazy golden colour. The aromas and flavours of Honey Crisp apples (one of my favourite varieties) really comes through. Just the right amount of sweetness, not too dry. Light body, spritzy carbonation but no metallic bite. Really tasty, well crafted, highly recommended.

Color and opacity of grapefruit juice. Three layer attack: 1) sweet apple ; 2) effervescent bubbles ; 3) champagne aftertaste. Not too sweet. Complexity of flavor and effervescence weakens after a few minutes, but solid cider.
